    I was really surprised and saddened by this. I hadn't know how old she was.

    I own two trilogies of the DragonRiders of Pern series. I loved that world, and those amazing alien dragons. I've always dreamed of flying on the back of a dragon, and Pern brought that notion to life in such a unique way. I need to read some of the later books, too.

    I always hate it when a great creative mind leaves us.

    Hi Angela. In an attempt to stop duplication, I'm going to close this thread and send people to the other thread we have about this sad event.

    Talk about it HERE.

    Thank you!
